…an angel of the Lord appeared to [Joseph] in a dream and said, ‘Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.’
Day 4: Christmas Around The World – Norway
- Merry Christmas = God Jul
- It is traditional in Norway to ‘circle the tree’ before opening presents. Families stand in a big circle around the Christmas Tree, hold hands and walk or dance around the tree whilst singing Christmas carols.
- Every year the people of Oslo, Norway give London a huge Christmas tree which is put up in Trafalgar Square. During the Second World War King Haakon of Norway was forced out of the country when Hitler invaded and came to Britain. Since 1947 we have been sent a giant Norwegian Spruce as a great big thank you for looking after him so well.
